A Plus Health Care has been a family business from the beginning. Founders, Jan & Al Hawley combined Al’s accounting and entrepreneurial spirit, Jan's background as a registered nurse, and their shared compassion for people. First location was opened in Billings, MT in May of 1990. In 1997 they were joined by their daughter Kris Carlson, a Registered Nurse with an MBA, to open a second office in Kalispell, MT.
By this time we were offering not only the Personal Assistance Services and Self-Directed Programs, but had expanded into providing Medical Staffing Services to local facilities across Montana, along with providing nursing services and home care. In the beginning of 2002, A Plus Health Care acquired five additional offices in Bozeman, Butte, Great Falls, Havre and Helena. These offices brought more diversity to our company allowing us to offer Home Health and Hospice services in their respective counties of Montana.
In 2009, we concentrated our efforts in personal care services on home care, private duty nursing and medical staffing. We still consider ourselves a family business; just a bigger family. Kris is current CEO and owner of the company, but we consider our growing number of colleagues as an intregal part of our caring family.
We have deep roots in Montana and are committed to our State. We do this by staying engaged in the communities we live in, by providing thousands of jobs over the years and by participating with our government and private insurance company to help shape the health care programs and policies.
A Plus Health Care is now one of the leading home care provider in Montana with over 575 employees providing care services to approximately 900 clients daily.
